What are the odds of Pittsburgh vs Georgia Tech?

Can Georgia Tech match 45-point mark against Pittsburgh on Saturday?

The Panthers hold a 10-5 lead in the all-time series against the Yellow Jackets, but matching that 45-point mark against Pittsburgh on Saturday would certainly be a positive goal for Georgia Tech.

What is the average point per game for Georgia Tech?

The Yellow Jackets are averaging 29.8 points per game this season. Defensively, Georgia Tech is giving up just 18.75 points per contest, which ranks 37th in the nation. The Yellow Jackets are also 4-2 against the spread in their last six games when playing as the underdog.

Is Georgia Tech’s passing offense toughest test to date?

That passing offense will face what is easily its toughest test to date when Georgia Tech takes the field on Saturday afternoon. Though the Yellow Jackets are middle-of-the-pack in the ACC in scoring defense and playmaking behind the line of scrimmage, they’ve allowed just under 170 yards passing per game, good enough for a top-25 mark in the FBS.

Pittsburgh at Georgia Tech

Kickoff: Saturday, Oct. 2 at 12 p.m. ET
TV: ACC Network Extra
Spread: Pittsburgh -3.5


When Pittsburgh Has the Ball

The Panthers tallied 92 combined points in their two wins to begin the year, nearly equaling that mark last Saturday with 77 more against New Hampshire.


When Georgia Tech Has the Ball

With an offense as multi-faceted as Georgia Tech’s, a run-pass balance is often a key focal point — and balanced is a pretty accurate label for this year’s group. The Yellow Jackets enter Week 5 having collected 383.2 yards per game, with 187 of those coming on the ground.


Final Analysis

Pittsburgh’s offense has proven very capable in the early going, entering with one of the nation’s best overall offenses to begin the season. But the Panthers’ defense will be key as Georgia Tech has mustered just 29 points combined in its two losses while scoring 45 points in each of its two wins.


Prediction: Pittsburgh 41, Georgia Tech 24

How to Handicap Pittsburgh vs. Georgia Tech

Pittsburgh didn’t cover a game against an FBS opponent until November. The Panthers easily covered the number in a 55-0 blowout of FCS Austin Peay in their season opener, but they went 0-5-1 ATS in their first six games against FBS foes.


Historically Speaking

Pittsburgh has won four of the last five games in this series. The Panthers haven’t won any of those games by more than 10 points though, and three of their wins were by five points or less.


Why Bet at WynnBet?

Why Not is the appropriate answer! For starters, WynnBet is an “Independent Sportsbook” and it differentiates itself from the competition.


Outlook

Life on the road has been rather tough on Pittsburgh this season. The Panthers have been quite strong in the state of Pennsylvania this year, earning a 4-2 record in home games, with the only losses being by a point to N.C. State and a rout against undefeated Notre Dame. But when Pittsburgh goes on the road, things have tended to get ugly.


Injury Concerns

Pittsburgh:
Running back Israel Abanikanda (illness) is questionable. Defensive back Paris Ford (personal) is out indefinitely, and tight end Lucas Krull (lower body) is out for the season.


When Pittsburgh Has the Ball

When Kenny Pickett is at his best, Pittsburgh’s offense can move the ball on just about anybody. The Panthers have been somewhat inconsistent in part because they’ve played a brutal schedule and in part, because Pickett’s health hasn’t been the greatest.


When Georgia Tech Has the Ball

For all of Georgia Tech’s efforts to transition away from the Paul Johnson triple option days, this is still a run-first football team. The Yellow Jackets average over 200 yards a game on the ground, and they were able to pull away from and pound Duke because of their ground game.


Betting Trends

Since Pittsburgh joined the ACC, these teams have tended to play tight games. Pittsburgh has won four of the past five meetings, but last year’s 10-point win marked the first time the Panthers had beaten the Yellow Jackets by more than five points as ACC members.


Weather Report

Life in Atlanta has its advantages, and one of them is late fall temperatures. This should be a great night for football, with temperatures at 42 degrees on a clear night with the wind blowing east-southeast at five miles per hour.


Yellow Jackets vs Panthers Prediction

I’m buying on Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets are off a phenomenal performance against North Carolina and I expect another strong effort here. What was most impressive about the win over UNC was the defensive dominance. Eight QB sacks, 13 tackles for loss against a very high powered attack.


Georgia Tech vs Pitt Analysis from The GoldSheet

Pittsburgh has won and covered the last three meetings in this series. The Panthers are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 road games, while Georgia Tech is 5-10 against the spread in their last 15 home games on campus (last week’s win over North Carolina was at Mercedes Benz Stadium).
